This is one of those variety type bars that I thought would work out well. The regular Lion bar is waffers, rice crisps, caramel and chocolate, this bar is all that and some peanuts.

Similar to the regular Lion bar, this one is a high quality treat with smooth melt in your mouth chocolate, great caramel, and some of the lightest waffers I've ever tasted in a bar. So already you know it's got to be OK because, they didn't change what worked in their origional bar. Sometimes when you get a varation bar there's substitutions and sometimes those substitutions take out what made the origional great.

The addition in this bar is the peanuts. Now first of all I should say that the peanuts didn't ruin the already great stuff from before. The thing is, the peanuts didn't really add that much either. I think the problem was the way that the peanuts where delivered. Instead of throwing in full peanuts they added small peanut pieces, even half peanuts might have done better. The pieces just blended into the other ingredients and didn't really add much. I just feel that larger peanuts may have changed this bar a little more, would it have worked? I'm not sure, but at least it would be different.
